WE WON!!!! Hibs 5 Kilmarnock 1

It is the now the morning after and I am waking up to Hibs being CIS Cup Winners after a great day at Hampden yesterady and a stunning 5-1 final score. Over 30,000 Hibs fans went through and survived a snow blizzard and Majorettes early on to see a fantastic game and result!! I especially liked the crowd singalongs to the Proclaimers (obviously!!), the Monkeys, U2, Snow Patrol and even the Frattellis (I think that Chelsea Dagger will become a new Hibs Anthem in memory of the day!)!!
It was an unforgettable day!!! A full Report on the game can be accessed through this link Hibs Vs Kilmarnock
Dad and I got back at 9pm and I am having a recovery day today before returning to London in time for the Council Assembly on Wednesday.
Anyway below are some pictures of the great day:

Captain Jones scores first goal in snow blizzard!

Benji scored twice! Lots of fans wearing fezzes and a few Morroccan Flags on display

Fletcher scores the first of his 2 goals!

Rob Jones recieves the Cup, first for Hibs since 1991 (dad and I were at that one as well!)
Hibs Manager John Collins after final whistle blows!

Benji with the Cup!!

The team on open topped bus travelling along Princes Street later in the evening with crowds of over 100,000 fans lining the streets and inside the ground!!!

Just reflecting with dad the fact that we have been at the 3 Hibs Cup victories in my lifetime. Perhaps a 4th is beckoning in May??? Below a few memories of the previous 2 Cup Wins.
